Petite grants for Pacific projects

The Academy of Social Sciences in Australia announces funding for collaborative projects with French researchers

Alexis Bergantz, (RMIT University): trans-colonial history of Australia and New Caledonia

Adam Craig (UNSW): citizen science observation of arboviral-carrying mosquitos in Pacific islands

Pierre Levasseur, (French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment): obesity in Tuvalu

Emilie Dotte-Sarout (UWA): pre-colonial settlement in New Caledonia

 Project grants are $20 000, which may not sound much, but is way more than the $7000 Academy grants for joint projects with Chinese researchers (CMM February 15).
